What does SPF mean?
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The number associated with your SPF i.e., SPF 30 indicates how long the sun’s UVB rays would take to cause redness (burning) to your skin vs. the amount of time without wearing sunscreen. For example, if you apply an SPF 30 exactly as directed it would take you 30 times longer to burn vs. wearing no sunscreen.
Why should you wear SPF every day?
Most of us know to pack sunscreen when going on holiday to avoid sunburn in hotter climates, however SPF should be worn all year round to protect the skin against exposure and harmful damage from two types of UV light:
• UVA (long-wave) causes aging, sagging and premature wrinkles
• UVB (shortwave) causes sunburn, skin damage and pigmentation
Tip: An easy way to remember the effects of UV light is UVA causes Aging and UVB causes Burning.
Who should use SPF?
Everyone! Skin is damaged by sun exposure over your lifetime, even if you don’t burn so it’s important to stay protected.
When should I apply SPF?
Everyday! It is recommended to apply 30 minutes before sun exposure and then reapply every two hours during sun exposure.
What is broad spectrum protection?
Broad spectrum protects your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. You can shop the Hello Sunday range in confidence knowing all our products contain broad spectrum protection.
What is blue light?
Blue light is a type of visible light, also known as HEV (high-energy visible) light. It is emitted from digital devices such as phone, laptops and TV’s, even light bulbs too! It is known to cause premature aging and hyperpigmentation.
We have added Carnosine to some of our formulas which is a dipeptide composed of two amino acids, naturally found in the human body. It plays an essential role in protecting the skin against HEV light.
What does anti-pollution mean?
Our anti-pollution formulas protect your skin against free radicals caused by air pollution (dust particles, industrial gasses, smoke, smog) which can cause irregular skin pigmentation and premature wrinkles.
What is infrared?
Infrared radiation (IRA) emitted from sunlight travels deep into the skin which causes collagen to breakdown, fine lines and causes pigmentation changes such as melasma or age spots. Antioxidants such as Vitamin C help counteract this and help keep skin young and smooth.
Do you have fragance free formulas?
Yes, we know fragranced products can cause negative skin reactions. For some, they can cause sensitivity, irritation and at times lead to redness, flare ups and breakouts. We are pleased to offer a wide range of fragrance-free formulas suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
Are your formulas water resistant?
Yes, our body lotions and primer are water-resistant. The formulas have been designed to stay on your skin after exposure to water, however water-resistant does not mean ‘waterproof’ therefore it is important to reapply and keep your skin protected. Our water-resistant formulas have a rating of 40, indicating how long the sunscreen remains effective while you are exposed to water. For example, after 40minutes of swimming you should reapply sunscreen.
Where is your sunscreen regulated?
Our products are produced in Spain and therefore are regulated under the European Union. If you look on our products you will see that UVA is circled. This means that the sunscreens UVA protection is at least a third of the SPF rating, which is the required standard.
